Republicans not getting it done in the Senate

In 2004, President Bush narrowly won the electoral college but won 31 out of 50 states. Even discounting the fact that a few of these states only went narrowly to the President, Republicans even in a bad year should be controlling the Senate. Although the country is split population-wise there are more red/red leaning than blue/blue leaning states.

The Democrats now have both Senators in MT, ND, and have a split in SD, all of which vote heavily for Republicans in most Presidential elections.

Republicans, given the built-in advantage they have in the Senate, should be doing a better job.

Hi Partisan Moderate: This is in answer to your plea over at Althouse for a clue on posting links. When you are in blogger, in the "create a post" mode, it's quite simple. Just click on the icon that looks like a paper clip [sort of] and a box will pop up. Enter the entire link in that pop-up box [including the http://, etc].

When commenting, however, it is a little more difficult. You have to actually program in html commands. An html command is surrounded by brackets [<>] at the beginning and the end of the command. It's a computerized toggle switch: bold on, bold off. The first bracketed command uses a bracketed b for bold, a bracketed i for italics and a bracketed a for attachment. The trick is that the end of the command [like "end bold"] has the left bracket, then a slash and then the b then the right bracket. [I'm sort of showing off, but I've used an attachment, an italics command and a bold command in this comment.]

Attachments have to tell the computer to not only prepare for an attachment, but also give the url for the attached page. To do an attachment in the middle of text you write left bracket, a, space, left quote, href, equals sign, url address in full, right quote, right bracket. To end the attachment in text you type in left bracket, slash, a, right bracket. Gosh I hope this helps.
